Educator Resources


Working in schools can be difficult, and our educators need quality professional development, live experiences to inspire their kids and materials that address state standards. The ISO is committed to helping schools reach their educational goals in an engaging and active way. Discovery Concerts are performed for students in grades 3-6 at Hilbert Circle Theatre. Early Childhood Teacher Workshops give instructors skills and resources to facilitate music making in the early childhood classroom.

Symphony in Color is an enrichment program of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Association, with support of Ronald McDonald House Charities, that offers a unique blending of symphonic music and visual arts. Next Generation ISO aims to increase awareness and understanding among students of the music-making experience by providing tickets free of charge to qualifying schools in Central Indiana.
